so i began my quest to create a great christmas cd. and here is my discovery: there are a lot of styles of christmas music that will not all work together in the same cd. there's the classic christmas carols, then there are christmas songs that we don't know. there's upbeat christmas and there is calm, sometimes mournful christmas. what i've discovered from listening to so many songs on itunes and grooveshark is that i like the classics. and i lean towards the mournful which i'm fighting against because christmas is not a mournful season. but so far, it's a fairly mellow selection. so here's a handful of songs that will be in my compilation:
baby, it's cold outside - with willie nelson & norah jones
what child is this - matt wertz
o holy night - avril lavigne & chantal kreviasuk (i know - but chantal's harmonies are awesome)
it came upon a midnight clear - sixpence none the richer (remember them?)
what would be in YOUR christmas compilation?
